Go back to the new equip drop rate

ErsioErsio Posts: 1,039
Seriously, please go back to the new drop rate. I rather get 1 epic per 6 towers, than 4 rares and 2 gems.
The new rate was 10x better as I got extremely tired of dealing with so many rares.

    Yeah, over the weekend i had a streak of .....legendary, legendary, epic, and legendary....out of 4 barons in a row. A bunch of gems too, but I liked the gems.

    **the rule of 3** GGS usually gets it right on the 3rd try. Be patient.

    I think the majority of people just complained since they was getting say 20% of equipment drops that they used to, but they never realized the quality. It was a double win as we would get more gems and higher equipment.
    yet now it's basically backtracking/double loss.

    Really? Wow, you're lucky. I just hit the rbc fort, and got ordinary equipment. One of my alliance members got a legendary one.

    GGE is always trying to get players to buy rubies, and to do that, comes up with horrible updates. Put this in your siggy if you agree.

    Yeah, I know. Don't think it's the old ones though, I usually get rares or epics, but never ordinary.

    I haven't found enough epics or a legend yet to counter all the rares, and yes I considered that 1 epic is worth 6 rares.

    Perhaps GGE could give us a button to be looking for gems or equipment. I personally have plenty of equipment and would like to collect gems to forge into higher level gems. That way players could choose what they are searching for in the RB towers

    No, please! Get rid of the gems! Not only they are very expensive, but they don't guarantee anything. Even a crappy ordinary piece of equipment is better than the best gem. Why? A piece of equipment gives you percentage of something; a gen gives you a chance. What is this that we're playing, a strategy game or bingo?

    Which is why WarriorDspong's suggestion makes sense. Let there be a toggle switch that lets your commander or alliance forge award equipment or gems, your choice.

    disagree
    It will only give players that are strong a chance tobe that much stronger.
    I only need gems and you would give me a chance at only just gems, aka meaning I wouldn't have any useless equip.

    OK, but, for the same reason, wouldn't it give weaker players the chance to be stronger because they can get and upgrade equipment instead of having to deal with useless gems?

    I think the entire gem update has been thought up very hastily. At least, it feels that way to me.

    The gem update had the potential to be a cracking little update and I was really looking forward to it but once again, I was left bitterly disappointed.

    1. Firstly, why do the gems have to be wasted when attempting to upgrade them? It's truly awful and leads to one getting bored of this feature very quickly. Not to mention the fact that someone will feel incredibly irritated when losing 6 level 9 gems for example.

    2. The coin cost of adding them to equipment AND at attempting to upgrade is high. I wouldn't be saying this if the gems weren't lost when attempting to upgrade.

    When I see a gem, I'm immediately annoyed. It shouldn't be this way GGS!
